Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
Ambiguously Gay: Observer is dressed as a drummernote A drummer in gay parlance is a man who dresses in leather, usually with chaps. Think The Leather Man from the Village People - and it has nothing to do with Wacky Dress Up Day - he just has a date.
Angst Dissonance: Invoked while Palermo calls out to Tony following Geronimo's gunning him down. The gang hilariously mock him with sniveling whining.
Big Eater: While Geronimo's size if nothing else certainly implies this, the riffing on it takes it to new heights - culminating in Crow and Servo singing about how Geronimo will steal your lunch over the credits.
Everyone Has Standards: By the credits song, Mike thinks they've overdone the food jokes in relation to Joe Don Baker and leaves in disgust.
Gasshole: All three riffers turn Joe Don into one, but special mention has to go to Servo; Kevin Murphy has a gift for phony belching.
God Is Dead: Palermo tries to evade Geronimo by dressing in a priest's robe, but gets pestered by a woman seeking a confession.
Crow: "God is dead. We're closed."
"Groundhog Day" Loop: In one of the host segments, Mike does the same pratfall over and over again while the bots are talking to Pearl in reference to a shot of a man sliding down the wall at the beginning of the movie being blatantly used twice during a gunfight scene.
Servo: I'm sorry buddy, but you're not going anywhere. Crow: Nope. Mike: But I just suffered through a really bad Joe Don Baker movie! Servo: Unrelated, Mike, sorry. You see, Gypsy sent Joel back to Earth in an escape pod she hid in a box of Hamdingers. Crow: Yeah. Servo: There are no more escape pods, Mike! Crow: You do know that you're sitting in the water heater, doncha? (beat) Mike: Yeah, I know.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Servo claims there's no more escape pods - but two years before they played with and destroyed three escape rocket ships.
Overly Narrow Superlative: "Okay! I promise I will never send another bad movie with Joe Don Baker in which a dark-haired sheriff in a small role gets shot and slides down a wall twice!"
Ridiculously Cute Critter: Goosio, the official mascot of Malta. The Bots think he's just something Mike made and brutally beat him. Turns out it was the real Goosio, who came to the SOL as a goodwill ambassador.
"Don't tell the Maltese."
Running Gag: The movie had a lot of swearing, so it had to be edited for the show. This resulted in a lot of silence gaps, so Mike and the bots naturally called attention to sentences that ended abruptly.
Take That: There are a couple of gags aimed at the then-famously unstable Italian national government.
Servo (As Tony is gunned down): In the time it takes for him to fall, the Italian government changes three times.
Joe Don Baker had already pissed off Best Brains with his less-than-flattering response to their riffing of Mitchell. Final Justice allowed the writers to attack back in full force (see With Lyrics).
